you need to have the quick 8 program at norwalk,these are the QUICKEST buicks in the world.run them heads up .4 pro tree!! let people see just how fast these monsters can go.and last but not least PAY them some REAL money as the cost of racing these cars is MIND BOGLING.

That means the fastest BUICK powered cars still have to stay home!! How about dragsters/altereds get a .5 handicap. Protree comes on , you can get a .000 green and we would have to be .500 to be green?? That puts you at a .5 tenths spot. Just a thought!! Let the beating begin!! Mike:cool:

Bobby, this is some exiting news you are coming back to race TSO. I enjoyed our little sit down at Columbus and had a great time with Brad T at Osceola. Looking forward to seeing both of you at Norwalk. I would like to run TSO and quick 8 if possible but I know with the time restraints it will be very unlikely.

Don has always been generous with sponsorship to TSO and he is a asset to the class for those who don't know him he is a great example of going fast with class.

bobby don's big gun showdown at norwalk 2009

who's got the worlds fastest buick door slammer in the north east?
we will find out at the end of may at buick raceday in norwalk ,ohio
i will be sponsering this event hopefully with the help of others at summit raceway park at buick race day at norwalk.
it will be the same format as the big gun at bowling green.
rules:
1.car must be buick powered
2.car must have buick body
3.no weight limit !!!!!
4.car must have doors
5. heads-up .4 pro tree first car to finish line wins !!
6.pro style quick 8 bracket
7.2 alternates (9th & 10th fastest time slips) will be chosen in case of breakage before first round is run.
8.after first round is complete no alternates can be used
purse:
winner will receive $1000 plus a 5' trophy (GUARANTEED PURSE IF WE HAVE A FULL FIELD)

if field is not full $100 will be deducted from each purse for ever car under 8
example:if we have only 7 cars make the field winner will get $900 & runner-up will get $400 etc.etc.

there will be a $50.00 entry fee that must be paid to one of my staff when you turn in your time slip.if you do not make the field of eight your entry fee will be returned to you before first round begins.

i'm hoping that this will bring the big gun cars to norwalk,if its succsesful i will do this at ever major buick event.i'm already doining it at bowling green this year,i will produce this same event at bpg,oceola,and reynolds if i get the participation i'm looking far.

Need tires from Harlow at Norwalk>

Anybody that needs new racing tires and expects to pickup at Norwalk from Harlow, please order them in the next couple of weeks before Buick Raceday, due to the Memorial Day weekend before BRD, they lose a day in shipping and I was harassed by the Harlow folks, "You Buick People always wait to the last minute" Cause I did last year and supposedly several others. Here's their link:
Harlow Racing Inc.
Thanks!
